When you hear the name Ted Peter’s Smoked Fish, you may hear St. Petersburg, FL, but it is just west of there at 1350 Pasadena Avenue South, South Pasadena, Florida.
The business opened in 1951 and the family owned business has been at that location for 5 generations. They have their own smoke house next door where you can smell the fresh smoked aroma of Salmon, Mahi-Mahi, Mackerel and Mullet. If you ever stop by, make sure you try their smoked fish spread and maybe take a pint home, as well as fish by the pound. We ate there several times when we were in the area and enjoyed every bite.
We were told by the owner after we showed him the painting, that wherever we would go in the country, we would have people recognize it. He was right, people recognized it from Detroit to Chicago and south to Florida.
